Pan-fried abalone

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Abalone steaks
3 tablespoons Butter
1 tablespoon Oil
\N \N Salt
\N \N Freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
2 \N Sprigs of Parsley

Recipe by: Fannie Farmer Tenderize the abalone steaks by pounding with a wooden mallet. Use persistent, firm strikes, and flatten them to quarter inch thickness. Do not overcook, or the abalone will become tough and rubbery. Thirty seconds to a side is enough. Less is better.

Pat the abalone dry. Melt the butter with the oil in a large skillet. When the butter foams and is very hot, add the steaks.

Season with salt and pepper and fry 30 seconds on each side. Transfer to a warm platter, drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with parsley.
